1. Now you've marked your plan a success, what about it makes you most proud?
I am so proud of this plan being marked successful because I had absolutely no idea how I was ever going to be able to pull it off. What I was proposing cost over a million dollars. I am just a mum with 5 kids who knew that what I saw was so dangerous for the lives of my children and the residents of Jarrahdale. I couldn't walk by and ignore what was going on. The only way I could get help was to expose it and with the support of PlanBig , the media,my local member Tony Simpson and the Serpentine jarrahdale Council we made it happen!!!!!
2. What challenges did you face on your journey and what have you learned?
My biggest challenge was to keep this story in the press and in the minds of the key players who had the power to fix the problem. I also wanted Jarrahdale residents to know just how dangerous this situation was and to support me in getting it fixed.
3. What are some ways that PlanBig has helped you?
I had some supporters and I didn't want to let them down. i promised them i would fix this problem. i didn't know how long it would take...years and years. But I did know that i wasn't going to give up until I had achieved what i set out to do. PlanBig allowed me to upload pictures to the gallery of the terrible condition of the pipeline for all to see. I could upload media releases and water corp updates and send the link to the plan to contacts i needed to see what i was up against. PlanBig is my constant supporter and I never feel alone on my journey.
4. Is there anything else you'd like to share?
Yes . From a budget of $0 dollars a year and a half ago....I now have $1.2 million dollars committed to be spent on upgrading the Jarrahdale Water Pipeline. it just goes to show that the impossible is truly possible if you believe strongly enough and your determined to put the effort in to make it a reality. I am pinching myself with excitement!!!
